Default Friends of Bill W

Can anyone tell me if meetings are available on Norwegian Gem? I'm pretty sure every cruise has them but I just want to make sure. Thanks

I am pretty sure that every cruise has them. You should check the dailies that come to your room, they should have the time and place listed in them.
But i have found that they are not well attended (at least on most of my cruises)
But most times all it takes is one other person

Good luck!

I was so ignorant as to what these two (friends of Bill W. and FOD) meant. When I went on my first cruise seriously I thought these were like private parties...someone names Bill W....and Someone named Dorothy...then when I saw it on my seconds cruise I knew it had to be something else!

Was on the Gem twice and they had these every day on itineraries....
